    1st round pick: pass rush. DT/DE
    I think that's highly desirable, but the DT pool is weak at the top and pass rushers tend to generate a lot of interest. #25 might not be a great spot to be looking for those things.

      i think this is a perfect year to trade down. presuming the draft plays out as expected, that is. i don't see any overwhelming BPA value at our position, and anything we drafted for need would, for the most part, be a massive overdraft.
      I think this will be the draft day approach. See who slips down to 25, then make the decision. If the obvious value isn't there, then trade down instead of reaching on a need.

      However, I believe that someone will slip down to us. A few teams will gamble on potential, a few will go strongly with need and positional value will influence others.

        He's getting a lot of buzz around here, but we've all seen how RB's slide on draft day. I think Richardson is the only RB that's a lock for round 1.

          all that said, if he's a guy i want, he'll go to the patriots. the nfl draft hates me.
          I remember when his stock was much higher and was considered a probable first round pick. Any idea why his stock fell? Just curious, I didn't watch a whole lot of college football this year (though i did watch a few oregon games, and i thought he looked good).

            Hmm.. what makes you say that? Poe, Still, Thompson, Worthy, Brockers, etc. would represent good value @ #25.

              Which one of those guys brings the pass rush we need inside? There are a lot of big, solid bodies there but I'm not convinced that's what we need. Worthy is the obvious fit but he's inconsistent. Brockers has big potential, but probably goes before we pick.

              Maybe I'm selling some of these guys short, but it seems like we're overvaluing them simply because the talent pool is weaker this time around.

                Size and scheme... people saying he's go huge holes to run through because of the zone option and pace of the Oregon attack.

                  I'm not convinced any of the ones I mentioned are future stars either, but I'm also not sold on the available corners, Alfonzo Dennard or Janoris Jenkins. Or Vontaze Burfict at ILB.

                  • Del Rio is a fine hire. He's a guy who's seen the benefit of impact DT play during his career as a coach... maybe he can convince the rest of the gang to put some significant resources into that position.

                    • Broncos Draft

                      Interesting article from the DP:

                      http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_19822111

                      More specifics about their draft board than I've seen in the past.

                      The missing piece is how they come up with the combined board from the within-position ranks provided by the scouts.

                        • Jason Hill might be a nice, under-the-radar addition.

                            He's got talent, but he's had problems with dropped passes... hmm, that seems like a rather familiar story.

                            • Manny looked terrible yesterday. If course he was goin up against probably the hottest defensive player in the league atm.

                              Mike adams had a bad day.
